The new teaser video reveals the engine and other bits and pieces of the Urus. The video also suggests that the production of the SUV is in full swing.
The Lamborghini Urus was first showcased as a concept model in 2012 at the Beijing Motor Show and five years later we will see the SUV in real. The Urus is a successor of the LM002 and it will be a game-changing product for the Italian company.
To build the Urus SUV, Lamborghini has set up a separate manufacturing facility in Sant'Agata Bolognese. The company has invested more than 400 million on the new plant and the teaser video gives us a sneak-peek of the plant and the SUV itself.
The production version of the Lamborghini Urus is based on the Volkswagen Group's MLB modular platform which also underpins the Bentayga, Porsche Cayenne and the Audi Q7.
The Urus SUV draws power from a 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine churning out 641bhp. The SUV will be equipped with an all-wheel-drive (AWD) system. Lamborghini is also working on a hybrid variant of the SUV, but it will not make it to production before 2020.
The teaser video also reveals the body shell of the black Urus and the unfinished cabin of the SUV. The video also shows the three fully built models sitting in the parking lot underneath the covers.
Lamborghini has high hopes on the Urus SUV as the manufacturer aims to double the annual sales by 2019. With the high volume of sales, the production will be doubled at the Bolognese manufacturing plant which will create around 700 new job opportunities.
Lamborghini is all geared up to reveal its maiden SUV the Urus. Now, if you're thinking about the Urus coming to India then you're imagination is true. Lamborghini has been aggressive with its products in the Indian market and the company is expected to launch the Urus in India in 2018.
